An easy option is the tram and a train. The tram stops just in front of the airport, with departures every 10 minutes. Take the tram to Edinburgh Park station, where you can change onto the train. There are trains to Linlithgow about every 30 minutes. Both the trams and train should have plenty of space for luggage, though the train could get a bit crowded ...

The problem with Edinburgh is despite having a taxi rank, it's not outside the terminal (that area is reserved for buses). Since you are presumably arriving from Sweden, it will be a longer walk than from the domestic terminal. It's not a ponderous distance, but something to consider if you are carrying lots of luggage because getting to the taxi rank is ...

There is a public boat going every morning (in June 2015). The cost for the public boat is 30'000 IDR (payment after journey). This journey takes around 3h30min. Mind that the public boat schedule is very "peculiar". It leaves between 9am and 11am they will tell you (locals, tourists, agencies, etc). Reality is, it can take for a while for the boat to ...

This is a quick itinerary and notes of my recent trip to Sumatra that may be of help to others thinking of doing the same. My trip was: Medan • Stayed at the Blue Angel. Excellent value for money but not to everyone’s tastes • Juice at the Tip Top restaurant is not worth the money. • While I was there, the Medan – Tangkahan bus was not operating. ...

Here are the options: Charter a whole car (with driver). A car with 7 seats (1 driver + 6 passengers) costs 750'000 IDR. I would recommend to pay maximum 900'000 IDR. Journey takes 8h. Share a taxi. They call taxi ( for that kind of journey) a car with 7 seats (1 driver + 6 passengers). The price is 140'000 IDR (in June 2015). Journey takes around 8h if ...

State of the road The road from Banyuwangi to Sempol is awesome. The road is like new. There is tarmac all way to the entrance of the Kawa Ijen (national?) parc, there are very few potholes on the road (if any). The reason for this, is that there is now a bicycle race called Tour de Banyuwangi Ijen, running every year since 2012 (or 2013?) so the road ...

Here are the options I know of regarding buying train tickets in Indonesia: At a train station. Obviously, this sounds like the best idea, but don't be fooled, you're in Indonesia and waiting times can be epic. Give it a try, if the queue is huge, just try another option listed below. At a local supermarket (Indomaret, Alfamart, or else). They almost all ...

The journey is typically split in 2. Cemoro Lawang to Probolinggo Probolinggo to Yogyakarta Cemoro Lawang to Probolinggo This journey takes around 1.5h regardless of the type of transport you take. Renting a motorbike in Probolinggo is the nicest option, see Probolinggo to Bromo by motorbike, possible? Catch a ride in a shared taxi with some other ...

Info from June 2015 It's very hard to rent a motorbike in Probolinggo. Forget about finding a motorcycle rental company, there is none at the time of writing (2015). I literally spent an afternoon trying to find one. Your best option is to rent it from either: your hotel (they provide this service sometimes) in Probolinggo a private individual. Don't be ...

I'm a Probolinggonese and right now (June 2015) there's no place in Probolinggo that rents any motorbike or scooter to bromo. It was possible in 2012-2014 as "lonely planet Indonesia" book (edition 2013) mentions on page 183. At that time, Sinar Harapan hotel provided motorbikes for rent. It was my friend and I's idea, but it's not working anymore.

State of the road The road from Probolinggo to Bromo is fine. Locals in Cemoro Lawang do ride scooters to move around the area. It's just like any regular country side ride in Indonesia. Riding in the day No problem at all, just do it :) The ride takes around 1.5h Riding in the night Probably doable, just drive more slowly. I have not done it ...

This is the internet answer, I have no local knowledge at all. The site of the Man in Seat Sixty-One has this page about buying tickets in Indonesia. The site ticket.com does accept international credit cards, as does the site Mau Ke Mana, there is one more site on that same part of the page, the official railway page for Indonesia, but that seems often not ...

There are frequent buses from the bus depot in Gilimanuk to the Ubung terminal in Denpasar. The bus depot is very close to the ferry terminal. It should be no problem to find a bus to Denpasar especially after the arrival of a ferry. I don't remember the price, it's been a few years. I'm sure you can get a taxi as well, but that will be much more ...

Well, you can't drive right to the top, obviously. But you can certainly drive up to the roadheads on the slopes. It's a short, straightforward run up to Kaliuramg. Otherwise you could make a pleasant loop along the road linking the main Magelang road with Boyolali, passing between Merapi and Merbabu, via the trailhead village, Selo. This is a really lovely ...

I did it, on the back of a moped. So there should be no problem if you are alone on your scooter. As I remind it, it is less than 3 hours

I have been to Bromo a couple years back (2011). We took a tour bus there and a public bus back however. If memory serves me right, it's a proper road (for Indonesian standards), with a lot of potholes, but some sort of solid covering. Not well maintained, but definitely doable with a scooter if it's not your first time riding one. There are also a lot of ...

Rome2Rio suggests various options including public transport, taking a taxi, and driving. All in all the hassle-free option would be the taxi. Rome2Rio quotes approximately 30USD for the journey. It's a bit steep, but you're talking about ~13km. If not you can always rent a car and travel at your own schedule. I doubt that will be cheaper than 60USD though ...

The fastest way is going from King's Cross St Pancras tube station to Paddington tube station first via Hammersmith & City line or Circle line/Circle line and then interchange to the Heathrow Express at Paddington rail station. The trip takes about 30-35mins, plus 5-10 mins from the rail station to terminal 2 and <20mins waiting time (<5mins for ...

The fastest way is probably to get a taxi. The journey time is 44 mins (though probably a bit more allowing for traffic), but there will be very short wait times at Kings Cross and it will drop you at the door of your Heathrow terminal. The cost is about 75 pounds, which split four ways is not bad: for four adults that is actually cheaper than the Heathrow ...

Use the Tube? Take the Piccadilly line to Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3 station. The trip takes about an hour and there is service every 10 minutes or so all day.

As far as I know there are two possible ways to get to Lake Toba from Medan.  The easiest way to do this journey is to travel on a tourist minibus. It is a bit more expensive than the public transport option but it also gets you faster to your destination and you do not have to worry about transfering buses, finding the right one, waiting for it to leave, ...

As a general rule, if you are in Medan, Go to Mejid Raya (Angkot Mr X) then ask any travel agent In the particular case of Singkil, contact Mr Dermawan (+62 82166457040). He is the manager of "pulau baniak Taxi" and one of the most reliable person in north Sumatra. As far as I know, the price is 140k rupiah per person There are also minibuses a bit cheaper ...

Statistically speaking here is what you may be looking for: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate (Order the list by 'rate') If you are used to a Luxembourg homicide rate of 0, you may be concerned.
